I can't imagine that I'll ever forget.

I was riding across the Hawthorne Bridge in Portland, OR on my way to work and was stopped by a raised drawbridge. My pack had a SYF patch on it and another cyclist rode up behind me and asked if I'd 'heard the news.' I asked about what and he told me, but I didn't believe him at all since the rumor mill was always rife with nonsense.

He'd said 'well it was on the radio.' I rode off.

At work, a colleague came in and said I must be really sad today and I began to wonder. So as always to quell rumors, I called the hotline and heard the saddest message I'd ever listened to there.

And, yes it seems most appropriate that there was never a Grateful Dead concert on August 9.
